The comfort rooms are grouped around a closed lush traditional Zanizibari square garden within the second building. They are situated directly behind the Art Hotel’s exquisite art gallery and massage salon. Each room has been individually decorated by a local artist. The rooms are 17 square meters and are all self contained with showers and toilets. Air conditioning, a fan, a safe box and a kettle for your tea are provided. In the garden you´ll find a cosy seating area with sockets for your electronic devices. There are very few mosquitos in Mfumbwi because they don´t like the sea breeze. However, we provide mosquito nets if you would prefer to use them.
